Saints News, 4/18/14: For $10, Drew Brees Might Have Dinner With You

New, comments

As part of a celebrity raffle, Drew Brees will fly out and host a 90 minute dinner celebration on April 29, 2014 for the winner and 11 Guests (Limited to Continental United States). Not much else going on today with the Saints except for the Meachem re-sign, which has already been posted, so I'm rolling with this as the lead story. The raffle is $2 per entry with a minimum purchase of five tickets (so it's really $10). It may be worth a try for Saints fans. Good luck to anyone who decides to enter.
